BRIEF: Women’s basketball season canceled

Women’s basketball will not be competing for a second straight year after their season was canceled due to low numbers.

Last year the same occurred as head coach Michelle Chevalier was cleared late, which did not give her enough time to field a team.

The Brahmas were scheduled to play conference games only and their first game was supposed to be against Moorpark College on Jan. 11.

Genice Sarcedo-Magruder, dean of athletics, said they are going to inform the conference and CCCAA of their decision.

“We are moving in the direction where we are not going to field a team because we don’t have enough players. If we have an injury, then we would have to forfeit and that is not in the best interest of players who want to play and the program,” Sarcedo-Magruder said. 

According to Sarcedo-Magruder, 14 players had expressed their interest in playing, but were either not medically or academically cleared to participate. 

Sarcedo-Magruder hopes there is a team next year.

“It is never ideal to not have a season for two years because that is not ideal for recruitment, but hopefully we can turn things around,” Sarcedo-Magruder said.
